by Bill Eddy and Megan Hunter

Overview
Why do so many of us commit to the wrong person – sometimes more than once? While most believe that attraction and compatibility are the keys to relationship success, in reality these are red flags in 15-20% of the population. When it comes to love, the brain is irrational and short-sighted. We make decisions based on incomplete information, biased understanding, and strong emotion. Love truly is blind.
Description

Why do so many of us commit to the wrong person – sometimes more than once? While most believe that attraction and compatibility are the keys to relationship success, in reality these are red flags in 15-20% of the population.

2. Ways they can jam your radar (deceive you)
3. Where your own blind spots might be Attorney, mediator, and social worker

Relationship experts Bill Eddy and Megan Hunter equip readers to see through the blinding haze of new love and spot potential toxic relationships before it’s too late!

If hindsight is 20/20 vision, dating radar is x-ray vision!
